This is how raid testing has always been it always starts to pick up around the end with 25 finishing in 3 days & 2.5 - 3 is long anough PTR time, All they have left is 3 Normals than all HM 25 and they can do that in 3 days & 2 days for final bug checks & fixes before the patch.
This is far from rushed, its running the same smooth progressive schedule & time spent that past PTRs have gone by.

the concept of blizzard renigging on a tweet... perposterous. but really who knows. if they dont do it they will delay and no one can really do anything about it.
You can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish.
still have to test heroic 25 bosses, no release build on PTR yet, probably be pushed back a week like 5.2 was. There's also no heroic abilities in the dungeon journal yet for Garrosh
Instead there was an announcement saying the 27th not even 2 weeks ago -- Why would they say the 27th if they didn't think they could get it done? Why? They wouldn't. Typically they hate releasing dates, but they almost never release dates that are inaccurate or people will biiiiiiiiitch.
Personally, I'd like for the patch to be released abit later: early / mid september...
Could use some more time to "prepare"

they still have a wing of flex AND LFR to test on top of all heroic 25 man raiding... Assuming all of that goes 100%, I still don't think they have time. I haven't seen them put 5 bosses on a day before and they'd have to do that in order to get testing done on time. And again that is assuming they want to be testing less than 12 hours before patch release which seems really iffy.
Holinka even confirmed that the PATCH will mark the end of the season. At this point in the xpac it should be common knowledge =P lol.
But yeah...if the season is still ending the 27th, like they say then the patch WILL hit the 27th
I really only have 2 "geared" toons, one is like 519 and the other is full Ty, I just can't be bothered to really gear my 90s. I did some VP farming to get VP capped expecting the 27th patch, but now that we have at least 3 more weeks... I don't know what i'll do.
Holinka said that the end of the PvP season would mark the beginning of 5.4.
It ends the 27th.
95% of all people would interpret that as the 27th.
Holinka is on drugs and we shouldn't listen to comments like his again. We should instead wait for a blue poster to say specifically "This is the date" since Holinka obviously doesn't understand that 27th isn't the 10th.
